Stoke Mandeville pamphlet cover Last chance for
Stoke Mandeville's
deserted village?

IN THE PATH OF THE
HS2 HIGH-SPEED RAIL LINE

by Peter Marsden

The construction of the HS2 high-speed rail line will sweep away the remains of the Saxon and Norman village of Stoke Mandeville, which lie in the fields to the south of the modern village. The line goes through the old church ruins and its centuries-old churchyard.

This pamphlet outlines what we know of the original Stoke Mandeville, and what will be lost. It sets out the evidence that this deserted village is in fact a site of national importance.

This is an appeal, not just for the protection of one deserted village, but on behalf of all historic buildings and sites along the route of HS2 as it crosses Buckinghamshire from end to end.

24 pages, pamphlet, with seven illustrations.
